10 Fastest Electric Cars in the World

Governments worldwide are pushing the Electric Vehicle (EV) industry with subsidies and regulations, and customers are seeking low-emission commuting instead of the fossil-fuel-powered vehicles threatening our planet.

The inherent advantage of electric motors in their capacity to immediately produce maximum torque from rest is a fundamental reason why so many EVs are fast. Another reason many conventional EVs can leap away from stoplights like a pack of wolves is chasing them is that they feature front and back engines that power all four tires.

With that said, let’s look at ten of the fastest electric cars on the market.

0-60 miles per hour: 2.6 seconds
Top Speed: 199 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 92.5/83 kilowatt-hour

Model X Plaid configurations can complete multiple track runs without performance degradation. In addition, the incredible acceleration and powerful tri-motor powertrain of the Model X Plaid would still be engineering marvels.

In that regard, it is superior to every other SUV, and the fact that Tesla has continued to maintain a range of more than 300 miles only makes it better.

The Model X Plaid has a spacious interior and unique features that make for an exceptional ownership experience, but it has also proven to be exceptionally crash-safe.

Did You Know:

X Plaids feature numerous technological features. For example, the sizable center screen provides access to the internet. Additionally, you can watch streaming videos and play cutting-edge video games. Other features include autopilot devices and a filtration system that eliminates toxins.

7. Lucid Air Dream Edition Performance

0-60 miles per hour: 2.4 seconds
Top Speed: 168 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 118/112 kilowatt-hour
Power: 1,111 horsepower
 Torque: 1,025.2 pound-feet

With 1,111 horsepower, the Dream Edition Performance model is robust. The Performance has a 471-mile maximum range or 451 miles with these 21-inch wheels. The inside is gorgeous. Nappa leather, Alcantara faux suede, alpaca wool, natural wood, and metal trim are all mixed.

The 2022 Lucid Air Dream Edition Performance was the fastest-charging EV Car and Driver has ever tested, averaging 135 kilowatts during our DC fast-charge test. It took 46 minutes to fully recharge its 118.0 kWh lithium-ion battery pack at a 350 kW Electrify America charging station.

Did You Know:

The hairpin windings in Lucid’s motors are as beautiful as copper can be bent. The windings eliminate the need for weldable joints by folding over on themselves in a multilayered weave.

6. Tesla Model S Plaid

0-60 miles per hour: 1.99 seconds
Top Speed: 200 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 100/95 kilowatt-hour
Power: 1,019 horsepower
 Torque: 1,047.3 pound-feet

To reach the Tesla Model S Plaid’s claimed top speed of 200 mph without damaging the stator, the motor rotors spin at 20,000 revolutions per minute thanks to innovative carbon-fiber sleeves. According to Tesla, a more intricate two-speed transmission like the one on the Porsche Taycan is unnecessary because of these carbon sleeves.

With a dedicated 7.4kW home wall box, fully charging the Tesla Model S Plaid takes roughly 14 hours. The Tesla Model S Plaid will charge from 10-80% at a 250 kW rapid charge station or a V3 Supercharger in less than 25 minutes.

Did You Know:

Jay Leno drove a Model S Plaid down the Pomona Raceway in 2021; he set a new world record for a quarter-mile run.

5. Tesla Roadster

0-60 miles per hour: 1.9 seconds
Top Speed: 248 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 210/200 kilowatt-hour
Power: 1,475 horsepower
 Torque: 1,106.3 pound-feet

When the Roadster concept was unveiled in 2017, Tesla CEO Elon Musk boasted about a 1.9-second 0-60 mph time and a 250 mph top speed—numbers that we fervently hope will hold when this sports car finally makes an appearance.

The 200-kWh battery of Roadster is supposed to have a range of up to 620 miles, but that number will only be possible with very little use; taking the track for a few flat-out fast laps will significantly reduce that estimate.

Did You Know:

The all-wheel-drive powertrain will stabilize the Roadster even in poor weather, making it a practical daily driver. Although it is a sports car, it also has a sizable trunk that can fit two carry-on bags, making it ideal for a family vehicle as long as the family is small.

4. Lucid Air Sapphire

0-60 miles per hour: 1.89 seconds
Top Speed: 205 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 118/112 kilowatt-hour
Power: 1,200 horsepower
 Torque: 442.5 pound-feet

Lucid Air Sapphire is a monster with 200+ horsepower that can accelerate its not-insignificant mass from a stop to 60 mph in under two seconds to 100 mph in under four and the other end of a quarter-mile dragstrip in under nine seconds.

Lucid decided to add powerful carbon-ceramic brakes, stiffer suspension, and a specially made set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. This requires TG-approved arch extensions to widen the front and rear tracks, providing just enough of a clue as to what the Air Sapphire is all about.

Did You Know:

Lucid is the “World’s Most Advanced Lighting Technology.” The headlamps made by Lucid Air have a Micro Lens Array system with tens of thousands of light channels. This technology offers the most cutting-edge lighting system.

3. Rimac Nevera 1408kW

0-60 miles per hour: 1.85 seconds
Top Speed: 256 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 130/120 kilowatt-hour
Power: 1,877 horsepower
 Torque: 1,740.6 pound-feet

Rimac Nevera’s 1408kW of peak power and 2360Nm of torque are produced by four “Permanent Magnet” motors in modules mounted on each axle. Although separate single-speed transmissions power the two axles, power is still completely variable from left to right.

A 120kWh (gross) lithium-ion battery pack housed in a T-shaped module between and behind the two seats provides power for the motors. There has been no mention of weight, and the range is anticipated to be around 340 miles.

The Nevera features an aluminum subframe at each end to which the axles are bolted and a central carbon fiber monocoque tub. The battery pack contributes structurally to the carbon tub itself and increases the torsional rigidity rating by 37%.

Did You Know:

The creator behind Rimac Automobili is Mate Rimac, who was just 21 years of age when he founded the business in 2009.

2. Pininfarina Battista

0-60 miles per hour: 1.79 seconds
Top Speed: 217 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 130/120 kilowatt-hour

The public introduction of the Pininfarina Batista electric vehicle took place at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The electric vehicle bears the name “Batista Pininfarina,” the company’s founder. And the Pininfarina GmbH automobile company produces the Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar in Munich, Germany.

Batista also goes by the codename PF0, which is used internally.

The Pininfarina Batista is powered by a 120 kWh Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (LiNiMnCoO2) battery from Rimac Automobili. This battery has a maximum range of 450 km on a single charge. This vehicle has a 180 kW DC fast charging system, which charges the battery to 80% in 25 to 30 minutes.

Did You Know:

Mahindra Group acquired Pininfarina SpA on December 14, 2015, gaining ownership of the name. Michael Perschke, a former director at Audi India, will lead a new Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. EV Project, according to a report from Autocar India on February 27, 2018.

1. Aspark Owl

0-60 miles per hour: 1.69 seconds
Top Speed: 249 miles per hour

 Battery Capacity: 69/64 kilowatt-hour
Power: 1,984 horsepower
 Torque: 1,475 pound-feet

Aspark Owl is the fastest electric car in the world. The most astonishing performance is the acceleration, which goes from 0 to 60 mph in 1.69 seconds.

With 4 PMSM that produce 2012 horsepower (1480 kW), the Owl has a unique battery pack for a range of up to 450 km. The top speed is 400 km/h. The Owl has a height of 99 cm, probably the lowest road-legal electric hypercar in the world. It

While not all electric vehicles have four motors to control, the Aspark Owl does. Electric cars have the advantage of instant torque. Their system, which uses the same technology that automatically keeps drones in the air, is more sophisticated because it requires the fastest response time possible.

It can only achieve this record-breaking 0-60 time by kissing the closest barrier.

Did You Know:

Aspark Owl is the first-ever Japanese Hypercar. Masanori Yoshida, a Japanese businessman, established Aspark in Osaka in October 2005. In the years that followed, the company concentrated on providing engineering services for the automotive industry, as well as the heavy industry and the electronics industry.
